Are Private Email Services Worth the Money?

private-email-server-hero.jpgComparing private paid email services like Proton Mail and free services like Gmail, for those concerned about privacy and disturbed by Google’s giant database of deeply personal information, are private email services worth the money? What Free Email Services Do With Your Email While free email services don’t often “read” your emails, they do spy on your content in a slightly less Orwellian but no less effective way. That’s how apps like Gmail can offer clever integrations like automatically adding flight data to your calendar or providing a tracking link without opening an email from a retailer. So free email services like AOL, Yahoo, and… Read more

What’s Going to Happen to Your Huawei or Honor Phone?

The US government has effectively banned Google and other companies from doing business with Huawei. Google can’t work with Huawei on future products—but you might be wondering what happens to any existing Huawei or Honor phones you might own.

Here’s the good news: Your existing phone will consider receiving services from Google. The Google Play Store and all other Google services, including Google Play Protect security, will continue functioning normally. Google’s official Android account confirmed this on Twitter. Your phone will keep working normally without any changes.

For Huawei users’ questions regarding our steps to comply w/ the recent US government actions: We assure you while we are complying with all US gov’t requirements, services like Google Play & security from Google Play Protect will keep functioning on your existing Huawei device.

This only applies to your current device. Huawei can’t include Google services on any new devices, so you shouldn’t go out of your way to get a new Huawei phone if you want Google services.

Huawei Mobile UK says it “will continue to provide security updates and after sales services to all existing Huawei and Honor smartphone and tablet products covering those which have been sold or are still in stock globally.” Your phone will continue getting security updates as usual, and it will be eligible for warranty services.

There’s one catch: It’s unclear if these existing phones will get Android operating system feature updates. Huawei didn’t promise feature updates, and Google likely won’t be sharing its code with Huawei to make that easy. Don’t count on any existing Huawei or Honor phones getting Android Q.

This app made ‘Dark Knight’ phone mic spy tech a reality

Remember that time in Batman: The Dark Knight when they hacked into every phone in the city and used audio matching and GPS to locate The Joker? It would seem that the app developers behind the app LaLiga had the same idea as Bruce Wayne – because they’ve essentially made that nightmare a reality. With their app, they’ve been detecting … Continue reading

Some YouTube TV Subscribers will get Showtime for free

TwitterFacebook

If you’ve been subscribing to YouTube TV for a long time, then chances are a Showtime subscription is heading your way for the summer at no extra cost.

As Engadget reports, YouTube is rewarding subscribers who have been using the premium streaming service for a while with a free Showtime subscription. What we don’t know yet is how long your YouTube TV subscription needs to have been active to qualify. YouTube simply describes the offer as open to “longtime friends.”

The Showtime offer will grant access to all content on the service, but without the usually $10.99 charge every month (or $109.90 a year). It’s also nice to hear that the free subscription does not end with an auto-renewal with charges attached. You can keep watching until Sept. 5 and then decide if you want to continue or not. Obviously Showtime is hoping you will pay up and continue being a subscriber after that. Read more…

This student-made VR game was one of the best hidden gems at E3 2019

TwitterFacebook

I don’t necessarily hate VR. But I am wary of its broken promise as the supposed future of games and entertainment, a promise it’s still failed to deliver on years after commercial release — until I played Ascend, a fight and flight PvP arena game made by USC undergraduate college students. 

Its humble little setup at the IndieCade booth sat directly across from the glitzy AAA Oculus booth on the E3 show floor. But ironically, it was the DIY student game set up that felt like by far the best defense for how VR might still redefine the future of play. And that’s because its thirty or so young creators managed to fix one of the most fundamental issues plaguing VR games. Read more…
